Liz,

I'm interested in Paul Park's forthcoming No Traveller Returns, but I can't find anything about it anywhere, other than the title. But since you're writing the intro, I was wondering if there's any kind of blurb-type description you might be able to give that would help me decide whether or not to pick this one up? Is it another science fiction story, or another Jesus story, or something new and different?

Thanks for any help you can give!

"No Traveller Returns" isn't thematically much like Paul's earlier work (I don't think so, anyway), except in the stellar quality of the writing. It seems to be deeply personal; deals with death and rebirth, a kind of "Heart of Darkness" narrative, only dreamier (nightmarier?). I loved it. Not SF, certainly not a Jesus story; dark fantasy, I guess you'd call it, or even a visionary ghost story.
